Nope; no relationship...was just pointing out how complex the whole mess is, and that originally, arabs supported recognition of a Zionist homeland while they were busy dividing up the spoils of the mideast with the help of the brits, etc., etc.

Yep; and expanding from each of their original homelands...would be like what "we" did while moving west in the 1800s, after kicking the French out...hmmm, maybe we bought them off? Purchase of some kind, but you get the idea. Most would say the Hejaz had more rights than the others, but they were basically a clannish sort (hmmm, have times changed?).

Here's the trivia: who said they are "...a silly little people...barbarous and cruel..."? Auda abu tey defended him regularly, but he fig'd he was refering to Fasial when he said it.
